Do you have any pictures of yourself in your 30s, Rocket?

 

My sister has the same length hair as me and people think she is much older (she is 2 years younger). All of my cousins my age look much older. My mum and dad at my age looked much older at my age too. Probably 99% of my friends I grew up with look at least 10 years older than me now. And that's not just my opinion either lol... that is theirs. 

 

The girl I met the other week (standing just 5 feet from me) was shocked I was 35 almost. She was so sure that I was only about 18... We talked for about half hour and she asked me 101 questions how I look so young and then was talking about going vegan because of it. 

 

But I get this all the time... so if it is as you claim: "nothing special going on"... then there would be no reason for people to always ask me.

 

Even when I talk to people on the phone or in VR using my microphone, they assume (by the sound of my voice) that I'm about 17-18 years old.

 

Sorry, but I just don't buy your argument that you can just brush it off as being skinny or hair style. We all know plenty of people who are skinny and have long hair in their 30s who look their age (male or female).

 

The fact that I've been doing calorie restriction half of my life has nothing to do with it.. okay. :)

 

From looking at pics of you and your friend, you guys go to great lengths to CR/lower T/employ great skincare regimen and that makes you both look boyish.

I am not saying that to denigrate you I just summarize the facts.

 

As we can see from the comments above,  many women may not like that for someone in their 30s and beyond. You may pick up a younger girl precisely because you look age-appropriate to her, not because she is attracted to your manliness.

You own admission that you sound like 17-18-year old only reinforces my previous point.

 

In other words, you may have some success with girls in their teens/early 20s but almost no woman in her mid-30s and beyond would find boyish look attractive for a life partner.

Furthermore, the CR restricts the vitality/energy component which Mind alluded to as well which is another turn-off for women.

Not smiling just to prevent wrinkles is just adding a cherry on top of the turn-off cake.

 

Granted, you may prefer to hang around with teens/20s and that's OK as long as they are aware of your actual age. Some girls break up relationships for nothing other than unacceptable, to them, age difference.

So I guess the bottom line is: yes, you may look youngish but at what personal (let's be honest CR is not fun and I am a "health nut" myself), emotional and relationship cost?

That sentence caught my attention, since its so full of pretense. For which reason looking appropriate to one's age does entail no personal, emotional and relationship costs? If I look around me my age group (above 50) I see none having lost no feathers.

When I saw the man in the OP's video  (PAul), the first thing that came to my mind was, "I've seen this look before... those eyes..."  And I realized it's the same eye shape I've seen in countless Asian males and females who have had eye work done. It's very popular in Korea, Japan, etc, and they all look almost exactly the same. Eye work in Korea is very affordable by most everyone. 

 

Also, the man does look boyish, but in a sickly kind of way. And that facial skin looks pretty bad.

I don't mean to offend anyone.  I'm just stating my honest opinion and first impressions.

He looks disgusting and very unhealthy, I rather look ''old'' than like that. There are many meat eaters that come to mind that look way better who are older than him, Joe Rogan, Evander Holyfield, Roy jones jr.

No, that's fine.

 

I just started an xmas job the other week and I've been meeting a lot of new people. I think on the 2nd day of starting the job I was working with a girl and she asked how old I was...  I told her my age and she was totally shocked. She was like "no f*** way, omg, are you serious?.... I thought you were about 22!" 

 

After she said that I told her about my blog, diet, and all that. She had a lot of questions for me! lol

 

Anyway, 10 minutes later her friend comes over and this girl I was talking to straight up asks her friend: "how old do you think he is?"  And her friend says "about 20."

 

"No, he's 35!"

 

And she stands there shaking her head in disbelief lol. She actually refused to believe my age and thinks I'm having her on and lying to her.

 

I wasn't surprised that they thought I was young because I have had some think I was as young as 18 just a few months ago. But I only had like 4 hours sleep that night and 2 hours the previous (temporarily working 3 jobs.)

 

As for how old the girls are: they're both 21 years old. She did make a comment how I looked really good right now and I'll be pulling 20-something year old's when I'm 50 lol.

 

I suppose being mistaken for being so young does feel nice and kind of affirming that my efforts are working.

 

And you are kinda right that I don't get much interest from 30+ year old women, it's mostly interest from early to mid 20s. I'm fine with that.

 

Don't mind the criticism, it's not well-informed though  :)

There are plenty of people who say the complete opposite: that he has incredibly young skin for 50 years old? 

 

Why such big differences in opinion?

Curious to know, Matt. Do you exercise at all - for longevity, strength, balance etc? I'm 33yo, quite skinny (I CR too), and hiking is my only regular exercise. I want to incorporate more forms into my routine, and so I'm looking for some advice.

He may be devoid of sun damage, but it looks really obvious to me that he is aging.  The elastin/collagen below the cheeks has sunk, and the jawline is flattening/jowelling  Sometimes you have to get the right view to see this, but the first picture makes this really obvious.

 

But a lot of those things that happen deep within the supportive tissue of the skin aren't easily preventable.  A lot of this is just genetics.

This is what I thought too. The jawline gave him away otherwise his skin looks very good.

To be honest, exercise is probably my weakest point. It never used to be like that as I was extremely active growing up doing all kinds of sports. These days my exercise is jogging 3 times a week from spring to autumn and also VR. Games like thrill of the fight is great for fitness. It's essentially shadow boxing, I guess.

 

Here's a short clip of me playing it Thrill of the Fight

 

 

 

I just got off skyping with someone and recorded a quick short video (it's night, so sorry about lighting). Don't be harsh  :laugh: I'm still recovering from a month of sleep deprivation due to working nights and my other jobs (sleeping 12-13 hours per night for the past week...) Got some dark circles, but starting to go away.

 

Obviously I'm 35 years old here (34 in the thumbnail:

Just wondering, does he smile? I know there are some people who are so obsessed with their looks that they try to avoid smiling or laughing because it promotes the development of wrinkles and nasolabial folds.

 

I hope so! That seems like a sad way to go through life :(

He definitely looks younger on the outside, but I wonder how old he is on the inside. 

Did he get any blood work done?
